Sensitized T lymphocytes can specifically destroy in vivo target cells with which they enter into direct contact. This suggests an important role for cytolytic T lymphocytes (CTL) in the destruction of grafts and tumours. Quantitative methods allow the assay of CTL and of CTL memory cells which appear in lymphoid tissues, blood, grafts and tumours during… CONTINUE READING
